The PRESTIGE programme enhances post-doc mobility
The PRESTIGE programme, coordinated by Campus France, officially started on September 1st 2014 for a total duration of 5 years.
It aims at fostering the international mobility of post-doc researchers. Three mobility schemes are available:
- Incoming, allowing foreign or French researchers to carry out their post-doctoral research work in France.
- Outgoing, for researchers from France wishing to carry out a post-doctoral research project in another country.
- Re-integration, targeted at nationals of EU Member States or Associated Countries working in research for at least 3 years in another Third Country to come to France to further develop their career.
PRESTIGE is a co-financing programme, funding about 1/3 of the post-doc fellow’s living, mobility and research allowance, while the remaining 2/3 are financed by another partner, either public or private.
PRESTIGE is open to all scientific fields provided that each proposed research project is in compliance with the EU ethics rules.
The PRESTIGE Call for applications is open all year long with four cut-off dates : March 31st ; June 30th ; September 30th ; December 31st.
